 Staff at Redbrik swapped office attire for football kits when they took on a team from building consultancy Monaghans in a special fundraising match at newly promoted Premier League team Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane stadium.
The match saw the Monaghans All-Stars claim a 4-2 victory, despite Redbrik Rovers dominating the match.
The game was the second charity match Redbrik have arranged, following last year’s fixture with Sheffield United Women which raised more than £1,500 for three nominated charities.
Organisers are hopeful that the event has topped last year’s fundraising total, with monies raised to be split equally between Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, St Luke’s Hospice and The Children’s Hospital Charity.
Redbrik and the Monaghans teams are hoping to raise even more for charity after this year's event
Redbrik MD Mark Ross said: “We thoroughly enjoyed playing at Bramall Lane once more, our game against Monaghans All-Stars was a fantastic occasion – and congratulations to Monaghans on their victory!
“A big thank you to all who contributed to the event – I’m sure we’ve raised
a fantastic amount of money for our chosen charities so here’s to a rematch next year!
“I’d like to thank the team at Monaghans and the staff at Bramall Lane for giving us the opportunity to play and helping us raise crucial funds and awareness for three great charities.”
 One of the region’s biggest running clubs has teamed up with the 2019 Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon.
North Derbyshire Running Club, which every year hosts a monthly 5k series No Walk in The Park as well as the Bolsover 10k, Hardwick 10k, Spire 10 miles and the Grassmoor 10k – which is new for 2019 – has joined forces with the 2019 Redbrik Half Marathon and Peak FM Five Mile Run.
The partnership will see the club provide a minimum of three pacers
for the event itself, as well as hold an information stand in Queen’s Park at the start/finish line. The club will also provide support and advice for runners on all levels, from tips on ‘couch to 5km’ challenges to guidance for more experienced runners – with jog clubs, training nights and more.
Sarah Johnson, Secretary and Coach at North Derbyshire Running Club, said:
The Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 20 October
“This is a really great opportunity for us to showcase what North Derbyshire Running Club is all about – we’re thrilled to be involved. The Redbrik Chesterfield Half will be one of our Club Challenge events and we’re excited to enter a team into this year’s race. The event is so popular with local people and gives the community an opportunity to get behind a fantastic mass participation
event – it’s great for the town of Chesterfield.”
John Timms, Event Director at Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon, said: “We’re delighted that this partnership has come to fruition – it’s great to have joined forces with one of the region’s major running clubs.
“It’s very exciting to have North Derbyshire Running Club on board. The Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon is a great community-focused event, but we wish to appeal to both new runners just starting out on their ‘journey’ and those with more experience who are looking to challenge themselves.”
There is still plenty of time to enter the Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon, Peak FM or Blachford Fun Run, which take place on Sunday 20 October at 9.30am. To sign up
